San Diego Liquor License Type 21

From start to finish, idea to opening, we're the best in the industry to help you make it all happen.

While many people think of bars and restaurants when they talk about liquor licenses, many do not realize that there are other businesses that require liquor licensing. For example, if you’re planning on opening a liquor store, grocery store or convenience store in San Diego, you will need a San Diego Liquor License Type 21 if you intend to sell alcohol. Type 21 licenses are designated as off-premises licenses for the general sale of liquor, including packaged beer and wine. This type of San Diego liquor license does not allow for the sale of open containers of alcohol. Also, there is no stipulation under the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) that bars minors from being present on the premises.

Unlike licenses for restaurants, bars and nightclubs, the San Diego Type 21 liquor license is typically issued to brick and mortar stores that sell items such as foodstuffs, in addition to liquor, beer and wine. However, unlike the Type 20 license, the Type 21 license can be used in applications such as liquor stores. The San Diego Liquor License Type 21 permits the holder to sell this type of alcohol without any quota on gross sales of other items from the store, such as food. Unlike the Type 41 and Type 47 licenses, the San Diego Liquor License Type 21 is designated as an off-premises license. Beer, wine and liquor may not be sold for on-premises consumption.
